Just Another Day

I know it’s been said, because I’ve said it, that we live in the Pacific Northwest so if we were to wait until it quit raining to do something then we might never do anything. That was my thought as I left my wet driveway this morning for a relatively quick 11 mile loop in the rain. Lots of puddles, lots of rain, lots of time listening to the gurgling sound as water completely fills the space between fender and…Continue Reading

Frosty Freezy Loop

One of my favorite loops because it’s fun, just an hour long and right here in Ferndale.  Park at Pioneer Pavilion, rided south on Ferndale Road, cross the river at Marietta, ride north on the trail along the river, through Hovander and back into downtown Ferndale. I did this loop yesterday morning and it was sub-freezing as the photos will attest, but fun nonetheless. And leading into the weekend, absolutely no thoughts of the Seahawks. 😉 Update – I’ve since…Continue Reading

Seahawks vs. Eagles

After so many weeks of not watching the NFL, today rolled around without so much as the tiniest thought about football.  Seahawk vs. Eagles, I don’t really care, it’s like rooting for Target to beat out Walmart during their black Friday event.  blah. Today’s route took me to Ferndale via Axton Rd, one of the most dangerous stretches of road around for a cyclist.  Axton is usually extremely busy and as you transition from County roads to Ferndale roads the…Continue Reading

Seahawks vs. Falcons

Oh crappers, I rode yesterday not realizing that the Seahawks play today.  Oh yeah, I am not watching the NFL this fall. Which is good, because if I were might have seen this imbecile make a fool of himself and the NFL by sitting during our anthem and standing during the Mexican anthem.  Instead, I enjoyed two, count’em two rides yesterday. First ride was a nice, sorta windy ride up Galbraith Lane to the towers followed by a rewarding descent down…Continue Reading

Seahawks vs. Cardinals

Oops, I didn’t watch the Seahawks vs. Cardinals game today, but I had my reasons.  One reason was that the game was apparently on Thursday, not today, silly me. The other, foremost reason that I didn’t watch the game was that, oh yeah, it’s still the take-a-knee 2017 NFL season. So today, not Thursday, I did my Smith Rd. Roundabout loop and really didn’t think about NFL football at all during the 2 hour ride.  The route is basically riding…Continue Reading

Seahawks vs. Redskins

It’s November 5th and we all know what that means.  It means I went on a bike ride in place of watching the Seahawks game.  We had a cold strong wind from the North this morning so I just rode an out and back ride from Hovander.  I parked in the Fragrance Garden parking lot at Tennant Lake and rode the dirt portion of the trail (see this route) down to Marietta.   Very crisp but fun ride.  The trolls had…Continue Reading
